The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirms the use of Starlink satellite communication systems by Russians on the front lines.

Radio interception of conversations among the Russian military indicates that Starlink terminals have been installed, for example, in units of the 83rd separate airborne brigade of the Russian Armed Forces.

The Russian forces of the 83rd Airborne Assault Brigade of Russia are operating in the Donetsk region near Klyshivka and Andriivka.

Andrii Yusov, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, stated in a comment to RBC-Ukraine that the scale of Russians' use of Starlink terminals in the war is increasing.

"Yes, cases of Russian occupiers using these devices have been recorded. This is beginning to take on a systematic character," he said.
